Iran's Supreme Leader orders increase of uranium enrichment capacity

Read more Iran in compliance with nuclear deal UN report

If Israel discovers that Iran has resumed the development of its nuclear program and is advancing it, "a US-led global coalition will threaten and then deal Iran a military blow".

On Tuesday, Iranian diplomat Ali Akbar Salehi reiterated that Iran "will remain within the framework of the 2015 nuclear agreement", as the country prepares to inform the United Nations' nuclear agency that is beginning to increase capacity to produce uranium.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sought on Tuesday to convince European states to abandon a nuclear deal with Iran, saying that Tehran's threats to increase uranium enrichment capacity showed it still planned to destroy Israel.

U.S. President Donald Trump denounced the 2015 accord, reached under predecessor Barack Obama, as it did not cover Iran's ballistic missile program, its role in Middle East wars or what happens after the deal begins to expire in 2025.

Shortly after Mr Khamenei's speech, French carmaker PSA announced that it was pulling out of two joint ventures to sell its cars in Iran to avoid risking USA sanctions.

French President Emmanuel Macron has been pushing for a new Iran nuclear deal through which the U.S. and Europe could tackle Trump's concerns about Tehran's nuclear program and beyond.

Iran has strictly and in all circumstances denied pursuing any military ambitions through its nuclear work.

French officials have said that Macron will also raise the issue of the Palestinian territories.

If it chooses to abandon the deal, it has stated it could "within days" return to enrichment of 20% - still within the limits of civilian use but allowing for a much quicker jump to military-grade levels of around 90%.

On Sunday, Khamenei repeated the long-standing view from Iran that Israel is "a malignant cancerous tumour in the west Asian region that has to be removed and eradicated".

The Iran deal paved the way for the partial lifting of worldwide sanctions against the country, in exchange for Tehran curbing its nuclear programme for several years.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu address a press conference after a meeting at the Chancellery in Berlin on June 4, 2018.

Britain is sweating over information transferred to the United Kingdom that was stolen from the Iranian nuclear archive by the Mossad earlier this year, the British Times newspaper reported Monday.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the tweet "quite extraordinary" while the Israeli Embassy in the USA had a different response.

But the remaining backers of the accord have limited power to protect Iran's economic interests in the face of U.S. sanctions, with Trump showing little inclination to spare European Union companies.

Israel's Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz said that a US-led coalition would form against Iran if it stepped up its enrichment of uranium.
